Some nice rides

Recommended Posts

So I went to meet up with the local Ferrari and British car clubs, only to find that it had been postponed a week due to inclement weather. We ran into a lovely couple that had not gotten the notice either and had lunch with them. Afterwards we were invited back to his shop to take a tour. I managed to snap a couple pics.

These were taken at his friends shop next door. This gentleman is actually a professional restorer

A barn find Jag. It's 100% complete and in GREAT shape. The owner is going to restore this for his wife.


He litteraly had stacks of Jag engines just laying around


These cars were in his 'storage aread' next door. All are awaiting restoration.

We then sautered next door to the garage of the gentleman who we had met at lunch. Keep in mind this is his personal collection.

I was actually assured that that came from one of the other cars. He had just rearranged the garage last week.

I was going to ask about the Esprit in the background of the MG picture.

Great pictures, Russ. What a great way to spend a cold, wet day.

I'd love to have you meet this crowd. Great folks and serious car buffs.

Look like propper series 1's as well (e-types).

Suprised, I thought the main one they sold there was the V12 with the horrible lights ?

The Healey is looking on the good side too !
